    Bad contract swap. Giants can eat much more money than the Red Sox can. Picking up $2M for one year of Samardzija definitely sounds better than Boston taking on 3 years of Eovaldi. But the Giants may see improvements in him at a place like Oracle, especially if the Red Sox are willing to part with those prospects, probably where I don’t think they’d say yes too. But, really comes down to if the owners really want to drop that payroll faster and longer.

    Those prospects are anticipated to arrive in the big leagues when most of the SF poor contracts are off the books.

      The Sox aren’t cutting pay roll per se; they’re try to get under the lowest CBA limit and not pay luxury tax. In that respect, Samardjiza’s contract has a higher average annual value than Eovaldi’s, so this trade actually works opposite direction of their goal. And even then, they’re it as likely to trade prospects to get rid of Eovaldi. Price? Maybe.
